Wow: Lufthansa’s Eurowings To Enter UK Leisure Market

Answering a surge in demand for flights connecting the UK to the island of Majorca, Eurowings will begin offering flights connecting Manchester and Birmingham to the Spanish island. These will be Eurowings’ first flights on the UK holiday market, but many more are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

For the first time in its history, Eurowings, a subsidiary of German carrier Lufthansa, will offer flights for holiday-makers in the UK. The airline announced via Twitter and with a statement on its website that it has seen a huge increase in demand for flights to the Balearic island of Majorca.

Eurowings has a hub on this island and already provides flights from the island chain to several German locations, earning the nickname the “Palma Shuttle.” The UK flights will begin with two return flights a week from Birmingham airport and an additional two from Manchester. However, the airline has said it will consider more UK airports and UK routes over the coming weeks.

A huge jump in foreign holiday bookings

The decision to enter the UK holiday market comes as a direct result of the UK Prime Minster’s speech last week. In the speech, Boris Johnson confirmed a timeline for the country’s reopening, including potential dates for foreign travel. Eurowings says travel bookings jumped by over 600% immediately after the announcement as Britons look to get away and get some sun. The island of Majorca announced it would be reopening at around the same time as it has seen a decrease in the number of cases on the island.

Eurowings is clearly hoping to capitalize on the number of Brits look for holidays abroad. But the airline will have stiff competition from carriers such as Ryanair and easyJet. With holidays to the US and the rest of the world still in question, airlines will be preparing for a wave of travel around Europe.

Although airlines may be patiently waiting for a pre-summer travel boom to boost their numbers, countries are still cautious about letting foreigners in. Vaccine roll-outs are slower in other countries compared to the UK, and new variants of the virus are threatening to ruin holiday plans.

Could Eurowings benefit?

If Europe does open its border internally, perhaps including the UK, perhaps not, some airlines will see a huge change in their numbers while others won’t. It goes without saying that the low-cost carriers would stand to benefit hugely as they have strong networks offering connections to major holiday destinations.

Eurowings had a rather disappointing year in 2019 and made a loss but was hoping to turn things around last year, ready to make a profit this year. Clearly, last year didn’t go as planned. But that might not prevent the airline from making a profit this year. A huge travel boom combined with the new UK expansion and recently announced European destinations could help the airline make a profit despite hard conditions.

Of course, an increase in demand lasting for just a few weeks won’t give the airline the numbers it needs. The airline is trying to encourage customers where possible by offering a generous rebooking policy and up to 25% off some destinations. The question is, will the increase in demand last long enough to help airlines?

American Airlines and JetBlue are making it easy for customers to return to travel while continuing to deliver on the promise of growth and customer choice as a result of their Northeast Alliance.

Fastest growing network to India

Beginning Oct. 31, American Airlines will launch nonstop service from New York (JFK) to New Delhi (DEL) on a Boeing 777-200 to meet the strong local demand. With its Qatar Airways partnership and previously announced Seattle (SEA) to Bengaluru, India (BLR), route, American will offer customers more ways to fly between the United States and India than any other airline partnership. Flights to New Delhi will conveniently connect customers to India’s capital territory three times per week, and then daily during the holiday peak from Nov. 17 to Jan. 3.

More service from Boston and New York

American intends to introduce new service from Boston (BOS) to Cincinnati (CVG), St. Louis (STL) and Toronto (YYZ) as part of its effort within the Northeast Alliance to provide additional options for customers in the Northeast. The airline will also operate all flights to Los Angeles (LAX) on its signature Airbus A321T aircraft beginning Nov. 2. Under the Northeast Alliance, American and JetBlue will serve 46 of the top 50 markets from Boston, making it easier to get to the places that matter the most as customers begin to embrace travel again.

The Northeast Alliance will also enable new service from New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA), as both carriers intend to introduce the following markets:

American JetBlue
Houston (IAH) Jacksonville, Florida (JAX
Oklahoma City (OKC) Nashville, Tennessee (BNA)
Omaha, Nebraska (OMA) New Orleans (MSY)
Portland, Maine (PWM)
Sarasota, Florida (SRQ)
Savannah, Georgia (SAV)

With these additions, American and JetBlue will offer more service between New York and Florida than any other carrier.

American and JetBlue launched their first codeshare flights in February, and the list continues to grow with 39 more flights available for purchase on either aa.com or JetBlue.com starting May 3. JetBlue will place its code on 24 more American flights while American will place its code on 15 JetBlue flights. Customers can look forward to more choices from the Northeast, including the best schedule pattern on flights between BOS and Washington, D.C. (DCA) and flights from the Northeast to the West Coast.

Eager travelers in the Northeast will have a bright summer, including the launch of long-haul international flights from JFK to Athens, Greece (ATH), beginning June 3 and from JFK to Tel Aviv, Israel (TLV), beginning May 6, which were previously announced in conjunction with the Northeast Alliance.

Offering the best product for customers

Thanks to newer aircraft and a seamless connection between Terminal 5 and Terminal 8 at JFK, customers from the Northeast can look forward to an easier and more convenient journey.

Premium product to Los Angeles

When traveling between Boston and Los Angeles, whether on JetBlue or American, the Northeast Alliance enables the most flights to choose from, access to a premium experience with all lie-flat seats, and entertainment on state-of-the-art aircraft. The A321T has been the standard of comfort on American’s flights between JFK and LAX as well as between JFK and San Francisco (SFO), offering first and business class. That level of comfort will now extend to all flights between LAX and BOS.

Larger aircraft with dual-class service

Just in time for summer travel, and as the Northeast Alliance enables more growth for American in New York, American plans to remove 50-seat regional aircraft from New York and Washington, D.C. As a result, every flight on American from JFK, LGA and DCA will be operated with aircraft that feature at least two classes of service.

Easy connections

Northeast Alliance customers flying in and out of JFK connecting on codeshare flights can also look forward to customer-friendly and easy transfers between JetBlue’s Terminal 5 and American’s Terminal 8 when secure-side transportation launches this summer.

More choices from more cities

American’s growing global partnerships benefit customers across the United States. Customers in rapidly growing cities and key business markets such as Austin; Nashville; Raleigh, North Carolina; Columbus, Ohio; Cleveland; Cincinnati; Memphis, Tennessee; and Indianapolis now have more ways to connect to the world through American’s flights and its partnerships with JetBlue Airways and Alaska Airlines.

Through American’s AAdvantage® program, customers in these cities can earn miles, redeem miles and receive upgrades and other global benefits only made possible through American’s loyalty program. In the coming months, more details will be revealed about enhancements to American’s AAdvantage and JetBlue’s TrueBlue frequent flyer programs that will help customers unlock these benefits with even more ease.

United customers can now schedule COVID-19 tests and be automatically cleared for travel

United to return the MAX to service on February 11, 2021 from IAH and DEN hubs

United Airlines made this announcement:

Since the Travel-Ready Center launched in January, United customers have been able to easily access testing or vaccine requirements needed for travel destinations, upload completed testing results and vaccine records as well as have them verified, all within the United App. Today, the industry-leading digital platform gets even better as customers can now choose from more than 200 COVID-19 testing providers across the country, book appointments and receive confirmation whether their test results meet their destination’s requirements. Once the test is validated, customers will see a status indicator informing them that they are “travel-ready” and receive their mobile boarding pass. United is the only airline that offers its customers these services as part of an integrated experience within its app and website and since launch, the airline has processed more than 275,000 COVID-19 tests through the Travel-Ready Center.

“We continue to look for innovative solutions that make travel easier and safer for our customers and employees,” said United’s Chief Customer Officer Toby Enqvist. “This new feature enables customers to travel with confidence knowing they can quickly locate a testing provider if they need one, schedule an appointment and get the results they need – all within the United Travel-Ready Center experience.”

Interactive Travel Map

United customers will have access to more than 200 testing sites in the TrustAssure network, including testing sites within United’s hubs of ChicagoHoustonNew York/NewarkLos Angeles and San Francisco as well as those located at many drug store and pharmacy chains. In the weeks and months ahead, the airline plans to expand availability to more U.S. cities, and add access to international testing sites for customers flying to the U.S. This process was designed with privacy in mind so that limited personal data is involved.

This new and updated ability to schedule a COVID-19 test and upload results directly within the Travel-Ready Center is just one of the many industry-first solutions United has introduced to make travel easier and safer during the pandemic. United was the first airline to offer COVID-19 tests to customers traveling from San Francisco to Hawaii, and the first to launch a free transatlantic COVID-19 testing pilot program for customers traveling from Newark to London. United also was the first domestic airline to require customers to perform a self-health assessment prior to flying.
